The TSA is Ten Today

Ten years ago today, President George W. Bush signed the Aviation and Transportation Security Act into law. It the ten intervening years, the TSA has managed an impressive list of accomplishments. Thanks to the TSA, the last ten years have brought travelers long security lines, sexual harassment, public embarrassment, invasion of privacy, increased security fees, […]

Florida Drug Users on Welfare Protected Against Illegal Search and Seizure?

A Federal Judge has temporarily banned drug tests for welfare recipients seeking to “cash in” on the backs of taxpayers in Florida on the basis of Constitutional protections against illegal search and seizure.    Federal Judge Mary Scriven imposed the temporary ban basically because, in her ruling, she said that the court needs time to […]

Tennessee partners with TSA

Drivers and bus riders in the Volunteer state will soon have more to deal with than traffic tie-ups. But don’t worry, citizens, it’s all in the name of safety and security. Tennessee’s Department of Safety and Homeland Security has partnered with the Transportation and Security Administration (TSA), the agency now infamous for excessive body searches […]

TSA fires 28 Honolulu Bag Screeners after "Probe"

Maui-wowie, man! That’s awesome! The Transportation Security Administration just fired twenty-eight bag screeners at Honolulu International Airport after an extensive criminal probe. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever approved of reading “TSA” and “probe” in the same sentence…oh, wait. It seems they were only screening for cash and jewels. You mean me […]

TSA Diaper Issues

Restore freedom and reduce deficit: Defund TSA

The story of a 95-year-old woman’s TSA search is just another example of the agency’s abuse of power and continued attack on our fourth amendment right. (For details on the story, check here.) If you’re not familiar with YouCut, it’s a site put up by Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Citizens vote in the poll on […]

Texas Rushes to Pass Anti-Groping Bill

The Texas anti-groping bill has passed out of committee in the state Senate, but the bill seems nothing more than peacock feathers. First, the special session that the Texas legislature is currently in will end on Wednesday. With a controversial bill just out of committee so late tonight, the likelihood of it passing a floor […]

Texas Governor Rick Perry Listens

In an article the beginning of this month, Texans vs TSA, I wrote of how Texas Congressmen caved to the bullying of the federal government, and a bill that had more than 90% of all Texas State Representatives’ support, failed to pass. Known as the “TSA Anti-Groping Bill”,  Texas HB 1937 would make TSA pat-downs […]

Texans vs TSA

As a citizen of Texas I was quite proud to hear that the Texas Legislature would be voting on a bill that  would make TSA pat-downs a felony. I was equally outraged when the bill did not pass. To quote my colleague from an article just a little more than a month ago: “Simpson’s bill […]

Texas Bill would make TSA pat-downs a Felony

The Texas Legislature is taking up consideration of a bill that would make it illegal for security officers to intentionally touch a person’s genitalia, even through layers of clothing. Violations of the new law, if implemented, would be felonies. The only exemption to the law would be if the security officer could prove he or […]

TSA Chief Opens the Door for Unions

      Last November The National Labor Relations Board , lead by Obama appointee Hilda Solis caved in to Union pressure that Transportation Security Officers hold a vote on Unionization for purposes other than collective bargaining.

Budgetary Gimmicks – We’re Only Fooling Ourselves

Anyone who has run a business or even a household budget, knows all too well that budget “gimmicks” will turn around and bite you sooner or later. Whether you are shifting overrun costs from one year to the next or spending more than you take in, most gimmicks are basically a deception and denial of […]

Abolish the Transportation Security Administration

Democrats’ favorite strategy is to blame George W. Bush for everything from high unemployment to Hurricane Katrina, so it should come as no surprise that some on the left are attempting to pin the abuses of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on the former president, despite the fact that the Obama administration—with the exception of […]
